Congratulations to all that took part in the preliminary rounds of the National Age Group Championships, all the teams recorded some great results. U17 Girls top their group leading into the next qualification round in Liverpool this weekend as do the U19 Boys who travel to Watford on the 9/10th April. The U19 Females are also in Watford on the 9/10th who finished second to favourites Manchester in their prelims.
Exeter U17s and Ladies teams belatedly finished last years season off over the weekend by winning the Devon Knockout Cup Finals held in Plymouth. The U17s (pictured) beat Barnstaple 18-9 with the backbone of the team Jack Cutting and Guy Geeson scoring 12 between them and Matt Tribble netting the rest. The Ladies final was a much closer game with the match ending in a draw. Devonport, however, ended up being beaten on penalties.
Congratulations to all the Exeter players that took part in the inter county championships held at Millfield yesterday. Devon won the 12&U and 16&U age groups and came second in the senior ladies, 18&U male, 16&U female, 14&U mixed categories.
The all day event that played across 2 pools was organised by James Baker with plenty of support from across the region making it a great success.
